Dawson, Mrs. Arvilla

The East Liverpool Tribune

After an illness of only three days, Mrs. Arvilla Dawson succumbed to appendicitis yesterday morning (Feb. 10, 1907) at 3 o'clock. Mrs. Dawson was the widow of Scroggs Dawson who died about 16 years ago. She was born and raised in Smiths Ferry, where she lived until about three years ago, when she moved to East End, where she had since resided. She was 68 years of age and is survived by one daughter, Mrs. Lizzie Strain of Avalon, Pa., and Mrs. George Maple of Beaver, Pa.

Mrs. Dawson was a member of the Erie street M. E. church. She joined the Smiths Ferry Methodist church in her girlhood. The funeral services will probably be held tonight at the residence and the remains will be interred in Riverview cemetery tomorrow.
